EQ Testing and Assessment
We do a profile on every single Candidate before they are interviewed by our Clients. They are fast, online and “painless”. 15 minutes uninterrupted at an internet connected computer.
Our EQ testing helps Clients and Candidates.
For example, the EQ profile identifies someone who may have trouble “promoting themselves” in an interview, but would be amazing in a job. We share this result with Clients. This gives a good Candidate, who may be shy, a bit of help through the hiring process.
Is EQ for real? YES
An employee with high emotional intelligence can manage his or her own impulses, communicate with others effectively, manage change well, solve problems, and use humor to build rapport in tense situations. These employees also have empathy, remain optimistic even in the face of adversity, and are gifted at educating and persuading in a sales situation and resolving customer complaints in a customer service role. This “clarity” in thinking and “composure” in stressful and chaotic situations is what separates top performers from weak performers in the workplace.

Emotional Intelligence’s Impact on the Bottom Line
One study of 44 Fortune 500 companies found that salespeople with high EQ produced twice the revenue of those with average or below average scores. In another study, technical programmers demonstrating the top 10 percent of emotional intelligence competency were developing software three times faster than those with lower competency.
Additional research unearthed the following success stories. A Fortune 500 company in financial services proved that their high EQ salespeople produced 18 percent more than the lower EQ salespeople. One recent study conducted by a Dallas corporation measured that the productivity difference between their low scoring emotional intelligence employees and their high scoring emotional intelligence employees was 20 times.
